How I’m supposed to follow last week’s post by Ermisenda about victim shaming, I don’t know, but here it goes.

Picture it & Write is a weekly creative writing prompt. We invite you to join in; continue the story or start your own based on inspiration from the image.  Poetry and foreign languages are welcome, but please provide a translation.  This photograph will be reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr and added to the Picture it & Write gallery on Facebook and Pinterest.

Please continue to write however you’re inspired, but add a tag to the beginning of your post if there’s mature content in order to keep Picture it & Write an engaging event for all of our followers.

Girl with a Back Tattoo

The tip of the marker was cool against my back. I sniffed the air, “you’re not using a permanent marker are you Lily?”

“Oops,” her voice tinkled as she stifled a giggle.

Oh well. She was three, I wasn’t going to scold her. Instead I slipped off my tank so that the only fabric she would color on was my black bra. My other sister, Kailee colored on my legs.

Your body is a temple, my mother always chided when I brought up wanting tattoos. What was that supposed to mean? I could put sugar and fat in my “temple” but I couldn’t draw on it? Best not to tell her I want elf ears.
